IF - vacant


I decided to do something editorial this week for Illustration Friday with the theme word - vacant. With all the foreclosures due to the sub prime mortage failures, there will be lots of vacant houses out there. I used the rental page from the Seattle Times as the basis for the house and did you notice that the chimney smoke is lettering that says 'sub prime mortages"? I used the "text on a path" feature in Illustrator to do that and I think it's pretty cool, but looks kind of small in this copy for the web.

Very nice! I love the detail in the smoke, and the house turned out great.

I really like this piece! The simple house shape and red X work very well together. Great job!
